Accreditation / Phase II

The Neuroscience of WE¬ģ: Trust Changes Reality

Upcoming Phase II dates will be published in September 2024

After successfully completing the Foundations of Conversational Intelligence® Program, you’re ready for the next step: The Neuroscience of WE®: Trust Changes Reality!

In Foundations, you dove deep and began developing competency in the primary Conversational Intelligence (C-IQ) Essentials. You practiced in breakout groups and your ExperiMentor sessions, then applied the concepts and the tools to your own professional and personal conversations. You now have the opportunity in Phase II to deepen your learning and embodiment, expand your use of those essentials, learn new ones, and be recognized by receiving the first level of accreditation as a Conversational Intelligence Coach/Consultant.

In addition to moving to ‘mastery’ in the concepts introduced to you in Foundations, and using the TRUST model and Neuroscience of WE as key frameworks for the course, you will deepen your use of C-IQ in your work – whether as a coach, a consultant, or as a leader of teams.

You will:

  • Broaden your skills by learning and practicing additional C-IQ competencies
  • Have access to numerous tools, models, exercises, and resources that you can now use with others
  • Help others to move from unhealthy to healthy conversations
  • Develop deep knowledge of the TRUST model, and how to move yourself – and others – from I to WE
  • Learn how to create, build, and maintain relationships and trust  - as well as WE-IQ® - in complex systems.
  • Become more steeped in the applicable and latest neuroscience research that supports your work with others
  • Begin shaping and advancing engagement with clients and others that elevate the 'I' and the 'We', as well as fostering WE-IQ®.

Throughout the program we will be discussing case studies, deconstructing situations, and giving you the opportunity to apply concepts and learnings to current situations and issues and see C-IQ in action.

Because this is an accreditation, your commitment to embodying – being C-IQ – and applying the concepts in your real world is part of the expectation. We will provide you with support, ideas, best practices, resources, and practice along the way.

We will be proud to have you as part of our C-IQ family. So, harness your own neuroplasticity, and join us! It will be worth it.
